Memorial Day

Back home in Nunam Iqua. ..well on the Yukon in general (I think it’s safe to say).

Memorial Day is also a day to go out to the burial sites and check on the graves of those we love. 

Keep in mind we do not bury our dead as there is only tundra.  Their graves are “placed” and checked on and cared for throughout the years.

While we’re not able to make the trip to do this other family members were.

Rest in Peace, My love. We love and miss you dearly.  The girls have been asking lots about you lately! I hope we’re making you proud! Love you!
